This week was the beginning of a three-part series on The Strength of Weakness.
I knew my conversation with Paul was going to get vulnerable because I’ve done so much deep work with him over the past five years. So, in order to ensure I wasn’t filtering, I gave myself permission not to publish the whole conversation if I didn’t want to. However, I have chosen to publish the whole recording despite the conversation getting deep and personal.
Paul is a (IYN) Registered Yoga Elder and iRest Yoga Nidra meditation certified teacher and a former Royal Marine Commando. He has worked in the field of addiction recovery for nearly 20 years and is now teaching yoga and iRest meditation in HMPPS sites.
